How to stop foot and toenail fungus in its tracks?


Fungi are kind of microorganisms which are present everywhere around you, even in the places where you won’t even expect them to be. They could be on the railings you hold on to every time you step onto the metro or on the bars you pick up at your gym. When these microorganisms enter your bloodstream through your skin, they end up triggering fungal infections in the skin, feet, and nails.

Just like many other types of microorganisms, Fungi can do both bad and good to the body but when a harmful type of fungi enters your body, it stresses the immune system a bit too much as harmful fungi love to destroy the topmost layer of the skin before they proceed to affect other parts of the body. Fungi also end up re-attacking a person trying to recover from a fungal infection. However, the good news is that fungal infections are very much curable with utmost care and with the help of homeopathy.

Before moving onto finding out about the treatments of fungal infections, let us first check out the most common types of fungal infections.

  • Athlete’s Foot

Athlete’s foot is also known as “tinea pedis”. It is a kind of fungal infection that affects the area between the toes or the soles of the feet causing it to develop pink rashes. If the toenails get affected as well, they start getting yellow and brittle. This condition is commonly found among athletes and people who do sports, hence the name. The harmful fungi responsible find a perfect environment to grow in warm and musty places such as inside the socks, shoes, public bathrooms, public pools, locker rooms, etc.

  • Ringworm

Ringworm is a contagious fungal infection; the fungi that are responsible for causing this disease can be spread via human contact and contact with animals such as cats and dogs. The patches caused by ringworm can spread up to 2 or 3 meters in diameter and can spread throughout the body. Most of the lesions have a visible elevated border and are very itchy as well. If ringworm affects the beard or the scalp, it causes flaking, redness and even hair loss. If the toenails or fingernails get affected, they start getting discolored and turn yellow; the nails end up getting thicker as well and there might be a visible gap between the nails and the nail bed.


Homeopathic medicines improve and boost your body’s protection or healing system which helps it fight and get rid of fungal infections naturally. The homeopathic remedies suggested to help kill fungal agents in your body may vary. For example, if you have been affected by the fungal infection in the groin area, sepia can help, whereas, Hepar sulph is prescribed to heal fungal infections in the facial region.
